Musty woody and cork aroma with big whiffs of malt and fruit. Orangy/red with a smallish head. Flavour was all cork, malt, no hops but some sour notes. Maybe this needs to be drunk by itself?

Clear dark brown with a sweet malty aroma. Flavour is sweet and malty with a weird spicyness that I’m not really liking, finishes a bit dry.

Pours a reddish brown with a thin head. Fruity nose with some noticeable alcohol, yeast, spicy. The flavour is sweetly malty with the alcohol popping up again as well as some floral notes, lightly yeasty with medium carbonation. A pretty good beer. Now let’s see how it ages.

75 cl bottle; Dark copper with white head that collapses fairly fast. Nose is sweet malt and a hint of chewinggum. Flavor is sweet and spicy with a strange dusty taste... maybe this beer has been mistreated by the shop?? Mouthfeel is heavily carbonated and allright for style.

Maltier than most bières de gardes that I have and a little bit oktoberfest in character. Bought this in Indianapolis. Page 269 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide only 344 out of 500 Classic Brews to go.
